These figures were created by the AWStats program offered online by our web host.  We also track usage with Google Analytics.

Monthly figures are posted on the Top Twenty page.  Current average is 58,269 user sessions per month. Web page views are averaging 242,252.

Our core local pages have remained strong and we have seen an uptake in new hits to additional pages, thanks to our redesign. Overall, our sponsors have gained much greater value, due to the exposure of their logos on each page sidebar in the new layout.

1st Quarter 2014 - Quarterly figures for user sessions remained steady with no increase or decrease from the 4th Quarter of 2013 and were up 16% over the same time period last year. Page views decreased slightly in the 1st quarter, after a unusual bump in users in early November. There was a 16% increase over the same time period in 2013.

2013 Yearly Figures show a increase to 625,608 users with a slight decrease to 2,790,409 page views as compared to 557,619 users requesting 2,817,973 pages in 2012. This is a 12% increase in users and a 1% decrease in page views over 2012.
